Kid’s Book Review: The Summer We Saved the Bees by Robin Stevenson

The title of this book is misleading and gave me the impression that it would be about saving bees. Since I am passionate about the subject, I was hoping it would be about an adventure where the family makes progress spreading awareness or actually helping bees somehow. Instead, it was about a dysfunctional family and an overbearing mother who humiliates her children by forcing them to do things they were not passionate about or even comfortable doing.

Rating: 2/10 –  I gave it a couple of points because it was easy to visualize the imagery the author projected. It does give a little information about awareness, but was negated by the inability to take the mother seriously. I do not understand the point of this book. I didn’t learn anything about saving bees or how to overcome family conflicts, and at no point did I feel entertained. Too much drama, not enough substance.
